I'm interested in adding a front disc brake to my bike and need some recommendations of components to do so. Attached are pics of front left fork (#1 & 2) and front right fork (#3) and specs are in profile.

IS? Postmount? CPS?
Avid BB7 Mechanic Disc Brake?

Your fork does not have PM or IS tabs, so you will not be able to fit a disc brake caliper to it. The hub in your wheel does not have rotor mounts, so would also be unsuitable.

That is what would be required to enable you to have a front disc brake on that bike, yes. Although the rim itself is not an issue, it would most likely be cheaper to buy a complete, disc compatible wheel than to buy a new hub and spokes and do a rebuild with that rim.
